CANADIAN FRIENDS: I have made a money poem with your coins. Just send me an email (my email is on the last page of the packet) and let me know your TpT user name. I will email the Canadian money poem to you.
Good Morning Deedee, I was looking at your online lesson plans for the week and I noticed n adorable 100 th day mini-unit. Is that available for purchase ? I couldn't find it anywhere. Thanks, my kiddos love your activities. When I introduce 1 they ask if its from our friend Mrs. Wills ! : ). Suzi Burns. firstname.lastname@example.org
Oh... no! I have not heard of that. I will assume it looks okay on your screen?
1) put in a help ticket.
2) Try to re-download it to see if it helps. Make sure you have the latest version of Adobe.
3) email me and I'll see what I can do

I have purchased many of your products but never a poetry unit. I LOVE the looks of it and can't wait to start in on Monday. I do have a question though. With the Groundhog poem you have an activity called "Starts Like". I am sorry to be so dense but could you please walk me through how my kiddos should complete this activity? Do they sort the colored pictures (ones I have laminated and cut apart) first and then draw representations of the sorted pictures on the "Starts Like" recording sheet? How did you set up the sorting activity so the children would know how to sort the cards? Any additional info you could give me is very much appreciated! Thank you so much for sharing your expertise!
You are not dense!!! First, will you redownload it. I found a few errors and I have corrected them.
My set up: 1) on Thursday we do one sort as a whole class. We use a pocket chart (at the pocket chart station) and I hand some of the cards out to my students at random. One-by-one they come up and we sort the words together. Then I add the response pages to the station and the kiddos are ready to go. Yes, they sort the pictures (and words if the activity calls for it). Then they draw a picture and write the words. 2) On Friday we do the same thing over at the Poetry Station where I also have a smaller pocket chart.
I hope that helps. If not, ask me some more questions!
